Ringed Mediterranean Gulls & other species: There have been some big numbers of Med Gulls on the Peninsula this autumn - and indeed elsewhere - and amongst them are inevitably quite a few colour-ringed birds, these rings usually bearing a combination of letters and/or numbers. Could we ask all observers to look out for for such birds and report them (Euring/BTO) if details have been obtained; this also applies equally to any other species where appropriate.
This weekend, Belgian Med Gull expert and ringer/co-ordinator Msr Renaud Flamant will be on our patch looking for ringed Med's and should you chance to meet him, we kindly ask that you give him any assistance you can.
